11:17 pm
as the town police of policing services at gillette stadium. a statement released yesterday said there's no conflict. so we took a look at the chief's pay. in the 2014 foxborough town report it was the latest one we could find. it shows the chief yearly salary as $147,000 but he gets another $thaw 34,000 for from an unnamed party vendor. a salary totalling $182,000 in 2014 alone. in the report, we also found events at gillette generated nearly can $3 million for the town. and this is the statement it essentially reit rated that police believe the situation with chandler jones was a medical situation that there wouldn't be any further comment and said that the chief is busy planning for the game at gillette tomorrow. in foxborough, sharman sacchetti, fox 25 news. which sounds much more dangerous in our winter weather advisory. either way though we have some rain moving in it will come down heavily. some of will you see some
11:18 pm
any way you slice it it gets slippery off to the north and west of 128 and i think more likely along 495 and north of the pike back in here is where you will see the slippery conditions from the storm system. now to me watching this come off the coastline seems to be in here. allowing for some wobble it could still be out around nantucket. either way that's still closer than the models were showing me up until this evening. as i always told you we have to wait for it to get off the coast to make a move. this one coming in during early morning hours. so by 3:30 you see that. there it looks like some shower activity starts to break out even some mixing. temperatures will be at or below freezing back here that's why you can get a coating of ice and that can can be dangerous first thing in the morning be careful of that. then the rain starts to come on in. and the same time the storm that's passing by to our south pulls some cold air behind it and brings some snow in. but it's very much elevation
11:19 pm
back up into the brookshire snow to the northwest worcester kills you get some snow. snow will be elevation dependent most of us will see rain after any ice happens first thing in the morning. the patriots have kicked off and the rain is safely on out of here. that's not going to be an issue for the ball game tomorrow. i have lowered this just a little bit. en route to out to northern worcester county could see an inch or two of snow. and the same back here. you get into the elevations into the green mountains of vermont into the northern berkshires three to six possible. if this tracks even closer this has to lift farther to the north and meteorologist jason brewer will be here first thing in the morning to make sure you're up-to-date on where those bands will settle before all is said and done. rain totals look hefty but up to an inch of rain will fall. back here you see these ams clearly if you get up in those ams it's snowing you can can convert at a 10-1
11:20 pm
typically six to eight inches of snow. again elevation dependent. hour by hour at the patriots game check this out. going up to 40 degrees at 2:00 for your tailgating and rain gone. the sun breaking out just before it goes down in the afternoon. a little glimpse of it anyway but mostly cloudy and 38 but dry during the game. on sunday, another system just tries to clip nantucket with some snow perhaps even cape can cod before it pulls away. monday some colder air coming in that will bring some more snow showers to the area. definitely a more active pattern setting up. we can can match up the storms with the cold then we're talking business. colder to the north and west. here on sunday you see it's 36 . if you are doing some travelling this week around new england here's what you're looking at. sloppy day is saturday nicer day on sunday. but it gets colder as the weekend progresses. for martin luther king temperatures only in the 20s with those snow showers. all right, kevin. coming up after the break u.f.c. president dana white
